The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited would like to alert its Internet Banking customers to fraudulent emails which ask recipients to reveal their HSBC Internet Banking user name, password and security codes.
These emails will instruct the recipients to logon to a fraudulent website by clicking the embedded hyperlink. HSBC would like to remind customers that the Bank’s Internet Banking site do not carry a web page as the ones hyperlinked in fraudulent emails.
Customers are reminded to ensure they are connected to a valid HSBC site before keying in any confidential personal or company data. Customers should access their e-banking accounts by keying in the website address at the address bar of the browser, or bookmark the website and use that function to access their e-banking accounts.
Customers should never disclose their passwords, PINs or online banking security codes to any third parties. HSBC would never ask customers for such information by email, phone or in person.
HSBC has no connection with the fraudulent site. If customers are concerned that they may have revealed their security details to fraudsters, they should call HSBC on 0800 80 23 80.
